British Airways has extended its hand baggage only fares to include all short-haul flights from Gatwick, Heathrow and London City airports.
The airline first introduced the option — which sees fares typically £20 cheaper for a return ticket or £10 less for a single — on five flights from London Gatwick in February last year (see news, February 2013).
Now the hand baggage only fare is available on all short-haul flights from LHR, LGW and LCY and in all fare classes, BA has confirmed to Business Traveller.
Passengers choosing the hand baggage-only fare can carry on a case measuring up to 56cm x 45cm x 25cm, plus a handbag or laptop bag.
Robin Glover-Faure, head of short-haul at British Airways, said: “The new fares have been so well-received by customers that we have now extended them to all our short-haul routes.
“We think our generous two-bag hand luggage policy is a great deal for those choosing the hand baggage only option to fly with us this summer.”
